Penguin Place, Penguin Playmates, Christmas Card, 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I have a fun and quick card for you today.  I love this layout. You can use it for a lot of other sets too, it's quick and simple.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Fresh Freesia card stock. It was cut on the short side. It measured 4-1/4" x 11" after cutting.  I folded it in half at 5-1/2".

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock for the layer.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) was cut at 3-3/4" x 3-1/2". The dotted piece was the backside of the top piece and was cut at 1-1/2" x 3-3/4".  I taped those to the Basic Black piece and then taped them to the front of the card base.

I fussy cut a penguin from another sheet of DSP. I could have used the matching punch but I was too lazy to get up and get it and since it was only one penguin and simple cutting, I just took my scissors and cut it out. 

Then I had to get up anyway to die cut the circle. I took a scrap piece of DSP and die cut a 1-7/8" circle. I glued the circle to the front of the card and then I set the penguin in place using Dimensionals.

I stamped the words from the "Penguin Place" set using black Memento ink. I trimmed it to measure 1-1/8" x 9/16".  I cut the Fresh Freesia layer 1/8" larger all around. I taped the two layers together and then set it in place on top of the card using a couple of Dimensionals.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was taped to the inside of the card and the card was done.

This was a very fun and quick card to make. I love the fun background too!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see the fun penguin Christmas card,
